Trekking Lao Chai – Ta Van Village 3 Days

Tucked high in Vietnam’s remote northern mountains, close to the Chinese border, the former French military outpost of Sapa offers some of Vietnam’s most colorful experiences.

The views are breathtaking. Vietnam’s highest peak, the 3143m Mount Fansipan, looms overhead, while the surrounding valleys feature terraced rice paddies and blazing green fields cut by fast-flowing streams. Layer upon layer of green ridges fades into the distance, edged by sharp, rocky peaks. The region is home to several ethnic minority groups all wearing their traditional and colorful attire. You can get there either by overnight train or car from Hanoi.
